Installer says install failed, and I should log in as administrator. I am logged in as administrator. I am always logged in as administrator. I am the only person who uses this machine. Update did however succeed in uninstalling my current version, so now all my libre office documents are useless. Turned off anti-virus and tried again; same result. Never had any problem installing or updating LibreOffice before. Any ideas?

It's Windows, so..

And btw, working as Administrator is never a good idea, but.. that's off-topic here.
